The TMS Process

The TMS therapy registration process is as easy as 1-2-3

We Make the Process Seamless

TMS Consultation

During your TMS Consultation visit, we will answer any questions you may have, and will fully explain what TMS therapy is, its benefits, and information on the steps to get started on your new journey.

During your consultation visit, you will complete all the necessary registration forms.

You may wish to start the TMS registration process online now by clicking on the button below. You will need information on your current and previous mental health providers, insurance information, and current and previous medications to complete the online form.

Prior Authorization

Most insurances require prior authorization for TMS therapy, except Medicare, and few select other plans. Upon receipt of your registration for TMS therapy and the appropriate consent, we will determine if your insurance requires prior authorization.

It is important to know, that although we will obtain prior authorization when needed, no insurance provider guarantees payment for any type of healthcare service.

Once we check your benefits and eligibility for TMS therapy treatment, we will let you know if you have any out-of-pocket deductible, copayment, or coinsurance. For those with higher deductibles that need to be met, we offer 0% financing, so that our patients can receive the treatment they need for a better quality of life

The TMS Mapping

Your first visit is called the ‘mapping’. Mapping is a fancy term for ‘locating’ the area of the brain to be treated. For the treatment of depression, this area is called the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which is just above the left eyebrow. Dr. Ibrahim, a Board Certified and TMS Therapy Certified Psychiatrist, performs the mapping procedure.

During the mapping visit, the doctor will determine your ‘motor threshold’ (the amount of energy required to invoke a stimulus). Once complete, you will receive your first treatment. Your daily treatments will be administered by a TMS Therapy Certified Specialist under the supervision of our staff psychiatrist.
